Been coming here for years! Never thought to review it. Gets busy in the summer so don't visit often but once the holiday makers have gone we return . The food is consistently good with a changing menu and we are never disappointed with breakfast, lunch or dinner. Have also had lunch with work colleagues and we never want to... More

Visited here for lunch as part of my wifes birthday celebrations and wasn't disappointed, just a sandwich lunch, we had cheese and salad with red onion marmalade relish each on doorstep bread and was delicious. The portions were great for the price of £4.50 so really good value for money compared to some other establishments who use thin bread with... More

Delicious food at great prices. Excellent service and a place to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. Located next to Newquay lake makes it an ideal spot for a family day out. Can highly recommend.

Relaxing afternoon tea by the lake. Well worth a stop. Lovely scenery and gardens. Friendly staff and good service.

You cannot please all of the people all of the time! It is a shame that some reviewers appear to have had a less than perfect time. We, on the other hand, are one the many very satisfied couples who go to Lakeside on occasions, just by ourselves or with friends. Looking at the Lakeside across the pretty boating lake... More

I am reluctant to write a review because I want to be able to get a table in the future. To look at Lakeside across the boating lake it looks like a typical municipal park cafe. Don't be fooled. If you look for the menu on line and find a very limited choice again don't be put off. The seating... More

Lovely restaurant overlooking the picturesque lake . Our table had been finely decorated with added detail of streamers and glittery stars. Highchair already in place with colouring books and crayons for our Granddaughter. The staff were very attentive and our food was superb . Will definitely re-visit this gem in the near future.

Thank Anne W
